Is The Cash-Landrum UFO Incident Solved?

     When it comes to UFO reports, people often witness helicopters in close proximity to unidentified flying objects. While there are several examples of this, none are more well-known than the Cash-Landrum Incident. The sighting occurred on December 29, 1980 and is one of the few cases in which the witnesses experienced adverse health issues as a result of it. In addition, it would later lead to a civil suit against the US government for damages.

On that fateful night, Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum and her grandson Colby were driving home to Dayton, Texas. As they traveled down Farm-To-Market Rd 1485, a desolate stretch of road in Piney Woods northeast of Houston, Colby noticed a light ahead of them just over the tree line. Initially their first thought was it's an airplane or helicopter from one of the nearby airfields. However, once it got closer they realized this was no ordinary aircraft.

The UFO, which now hovered over the road directly in front of them, was shaped like a diamond with the top and bottom cutoff. At regular intervals it was shooting out an intense stream of reddish-orange flames from the bottom. They described it as something akin to a rocket blast. Betty had brought the car to an immediate stop to avoid driving underneath it. . . .

. . . Fast-forward almost 19 years to the day, a then secret military aircraft would soon make headlines as the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the magazine Popular Mechanics. The craft, named the Lenticular Reentry Vehicle (LVR), was a nuclear flying saucer designed by the Los Angeles Division of North American Aviation under contract with the U.S. Air Force. Until then, this flying saucer had been hidden away for years under the Pentagons cloak of “black budget” secrets. The project was classified from 1962 until December 28, 1999 when it was cleared for public release. . . .
